Make bedtime a great time for stories and loads of fun for children, in this delightful rhyming and colourful dream land!At first the night is frightening with shadows on the wall and the child's imagination runs wild. Dream clouds appear, bringing strange and scary monsters. But are these creatures as terrifying as they seem'...Tonight the wind is howling madWith a temper - very bad!Trees sway madly outside my roomCast moving shadows in the gloomBranches squeak on my wall outsideUnder my bedcovers I quickly hide
